    It's been awhile, but we're back with a freeform session just before the busy holiday season starts. We'll kick off with an intro to JavaScript and Node.js after that you're free to work on your own projects. Don't have a project or an idea to work on? No problem, check out https://nodeschool.io/#workshoppers and start learning together!

This is a hackerspace with the intention to learn people more about technology by providing free workshops.

A: Well, a laptop is kind of handy to start doing some actual programming. But don't require anything else besides a good mood! Q: Who will be there? A: A few mentors will always be available to help you. Either to answer questions, to make some examples, to give you hints or whatever you think need to get a step closer towards your goal of being a badass programmer. Q: How long does the workshop take? A: It really depends on you. You're welcome to stay as long as you want or is required. But the mentors will give a hint when they think it's time to wrap up.

  • NodeSchool #9 (w/ a workshop about GraphQL)

    Hackerspace Pixelbar

    It’s been a while, but we’re back! Our space had some renovation, which now allows us to do a workshop downstairs and a freeform upstairs if you want. Workshop Instead of creating a traditional API using REST (a way to create a webserver and serve data to a website), we’ll be looking at GraphQL. This is a technology that has been picked up by larger companies, which allows you to do actual quering of your data. Don’t worry if you didn’t really get that! We’ll be able to help everyone out, whether you’re a beginning with programming or somebody that already start doing NodeJS development. Freeform Want to show of your project? Or need help with your project? It doesn’t need to be related to GraphQL - but that would be nice. Talk, learn and do projects with others. Check the site for more information: https://nodeschool.io/rotterdam/ Our program 19:00 - Doors open 19:30 - Introduction to GraphQL 23:00 - Cleaning up Location Pixelbar hosts NodeSchool Rotterdam.

  • NodeSchool Rotterdam #6: Electron

    Hackerspace Pixelbar

    This time we're going to try out something new and exciting: Electron. There is actually already a NodeSchool workshopper about this: Elementary Electron (https://github.com/maxogden/elementary-electron). But we'll give a nice intro to Electron too, so you can sit back and learn - and start developing your own desktop app! Never heard of Electron before? Never did something with JavaScript? No problem! We've got you covered. This workshop is for everyone, beginners and pro's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YP_nOCO-4Q& Our program 7:00 - Opening doors 7:30 - Introduction (doors are closed, please message us on chat if you're later) 8:00 - Electron time! 9:00 - And we're done 🍻 11:00 - Closing doors You can stick around to ask questions, discuss the meetup or just chill afterwards.

  • NodeSchool Rotterdam #5

    Hackerspace Pixelbar

    We're going back to the fundamentals of Node and JavaScript. This means there's no specific subject, but instead we'll cover many small topics that have to do with writing common Node projects. Things like built-in features of Node, tools and packages, but also common (design) patterns that are used within JavaScript. Note to people that already visited a NodeSchool: we will cover other subjects than before. Our program 7:00 - Opening doors 7:30 - Introduction (doors are closed, please message us on chat if you're later) 8:00 - Fundamentals 9:00 - And we're done! 11:00 - Closing doors You can stick around to ask questions, discuss the meetup or just chill afterwards.

    After a short break we're back and ready to have some fun with Nodejs. This time, we'd like to do something more specific, namely: Image Processing & Drawing!

Whether you're a beginner, or intermediate developer - everyone is welcome! But a requirement is to bring your laptop. Our program 7:00 - Opening doors (beer & pizza!) 7:30 - Introduction (doors are closed, please message us on chat if you're later) 8:00 - Image processing/drawing 9:00 - And we're done! 11:00 - Closing doors You can stick around to ask questions, discuss the meetup or just chill afterwards.

  • NodeSchool Rotterdam #3

    Hackerspace Pixelbar

    The last time we had a lot fun building a chatbot with JavaScript in NodeJS! To continue on this journey of learning how to work with event based programming, we figured it was time to dive into websockets. Although it might be very similar to building a chatbot, we think it can be either a good lesson for new people or a fun challenge for the intermediate developer. Our program 7:00 - Opening doors 7:30 - Introduction (doors are closed, please message us on chat if you're later) 8:00 - Let's go realtime with websockets! 9:00 - And we're done!
